Phoompat had great communication before the tour and we found him easily. He spoke clearly and was professional. You can tell his is very proud of his homeland here in Chiang Mai. The tour is not centered around the old city and just visiting Wats. If you love history this a great tour for you as Phoompat is very knowledgeable and explains the history and time line of events for Chiang Mai and Thailand well. This tour spends most of the time outside of the old city and we visited local neighborhoods, markets, Wats and pagodias we would not have otherwise seen. Great tour for our first day in Chiang Mai.
